Hi, I have an Electrolux dishwasher (PNC ********* which has flashed up with an error message (30). Can you let me know what this means, please, as I can't find the manual?
Hoping you can help. With thanks, Fiona
George-Allsorts :

Good morning.

George-Allsorts :

Can you possibly supply me with the Model number and the PNC number of the appliance please

George-Allsorts :

These are required as the error code relates to different problems depending on the PNC and Model

George-Allsorts :

The Problem is usually related to water in the base which has activated the Anti-Flood Protection System

Customer: Hi, apologies for the delay in replying. The model number is ***** The PNC number is ********* Fiona
George-Allsorts :

The Problem is listed related to the Aqua Control System which is water in the base which activates the Anti-Flood Protection System .. This usually comes at the same time as the pump running constantly

Customer: Hi George, that sounds like it could be it - the pump does sound like it's running constantly so I've turned it off at the switch. Do I need to call an engineer or is this something I can fix?
George-Allsorts :

can you not hear or see the water at all?

George, there is a little water in the bottom of the filter but not a lot. I'm trying to undo the waste water pipe under the sink in case that's blocked and not allowing the water out. Rather stiff connection that's stubborn to undo.
This is not the correct area to be looking for the water...
The problem you have is that water has accessed the base and raised the float that operates the flood protection... You would need to access the base to find the source of the flooding.. Sometimes, if the model has the inlet at the top of the machine it breaks and water then runs down the tube to access the base, or it could be a burst pipe, a leaking seal or any of 100s of different things.

Thanks George. I think it;s beyond me and I'll call an engineer. Thanks so much for your help. Fiona
